Detailed Description

Callable bond base class.

Base callable bond class for fixed and zero coupon bonds. Defines commonalities between fixed and zero coupon callable bonds. At present, only European and Bermudan put/call schedules supported (no American optionality), as defined by the Callability class.

Possible enhancements

models/shortrate/calibrationHelpers

OAS/OAD

floating rate callable bonds ?

Member Function Documentation

Volatility impliedVolatility (Real targetValue, const Handle< YieldTermStructure > & discountCurve, Real accuracy, Size maxEvaluations, Volatility minVol, Volatility maxVol) const

returns the Black implied forward yield volatility

the forward yield volatility, see Hull, Fourth Edition, Chapter 20, pg 536). Relevant only to European put/call schedules

virtual void setupArguments (PricingEngine::arguments *) const [virtual]

When a derived argument structure is defined for an instrument, this method should be overridden to fill it. This is mandatory in case a pricing engine is used.

Reimplemented from Bond.

Reimplemented in CallableFixedRateBond.
